Central KL

Central KL is home to many of KL's key historic buildings and monuments. It was here that Malaysia gained independence from Britain in 1957, and in Merdaka Square the Union Jack was lowered for the final time. Overlooking the square is the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, an historic building home to the first Malaysian government. Across the square is the Selangor Club, the oldest high society club in KL.

Important religious sites in the area include the Masjid Jamek and the Masjid Negara - the former and current national mosques. There is also the Islamic Arts museum, home to a wide variety of Islamic artefacts. For Christians, St. Mary's Cathedral is located to the northern end of Merdaka Square. There is also the Hindu temple Sri Mariamman just on the edge of Chinatown, as well as the historic Sze Ya Temple.

Other significant sites in the area include the Istana Negara - home to the King of Malaysia. Also by Merdaka Square is the Old City Hall, while further museums in the area include the National Museum and the Planetarium. The National Monument records the brave acts of Malaysians during the 2nd World War and the Japanese occupation.
